What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders caused by misalignment of the joints of the body termed 'subluxations'.
Chiropractors practice a drug-free, hands on approach and correct these misalignments through spinal manipulation or 'chiropractic adjustment'. These subluxations can be precipitated by many factors such as acute traumatic injury and incorrect sitting, to name a few, They then cause physical and chemical changes to the injured tissues resulting in inflammation, pain and diminished function.
The restoration of motion through the adjustment leads to a relief of symptoms and decrease in pain.
